Review the 48MP camera details and Oppo F11 Pro – VnReview's selfie camera

The Oppo F1 Pro has two notable highlights about the camera: one is a 16MP front-facing camera and two 48-megapixel rear cameras are popular in the mid-range segment today.

Mid-range smartphones now have two trends in camera: cramming up to 3-4 cameras in the back or using high-resolution 48MP cameras. Samsung represents the first trend, while Oppo and many others follow the second trend. On the F11 Pro, it uses a dual camera cluster consisting of a 48MP main camera and a 5MP secondary camera to assist in capturing fonts.

Taking advantage of the fact that many users mistakenly believe that a multi-pixel camera is good, phone companies have recently competed to equip 48MP cameras for mid-range smartphones. Machines using popular 48MP cameras are Sony (IMX586) or Samsung (ISOCELL GM1) sensors. The 48MP camera of Oppo F11 Pro has not been announced by the manufacturer yet using its 48MP sensor. Normally, applications reading AIDA64 configuration parameters will reveal information about camera sensors used on the phone, but only on F11 Pro parameters such as resolution, focus, focus mode, .. .

In addition to the unknown sensor details from any vendor, according to the manufacturer, the F11 Pro's 48MP camera has a f / 1.79 lens, 1 / 2.25 "sensor size and 0.8 micron pixel size. Meanwhile, the 5MP secondary camera is only used to capture the depth of the image deletion, and the selfie camera has a 16MP resolution of f / 2.0, which supports HDR mode to improve backlit photos.

The front camera has a 16MP resolution

The camera has 3 main modes including normal photography, portraits and video recording that can be quickly converted on the interface. In addition, the machine also has 6 other familiar shooting modes hidden under the sub-menu is night, professional (to adjust the exposure time, focus range, exposure compensation and white balance), panorama panorama, switch Slow motion, fast forward and Google Lens. In F11 Pro, Oppo also included a new mode, Dazzle Color (dazzling color), which enhances the previous super-bright analog image mode on Oppo F7 or F9.

It features a "Dazzling Color" feature that enhances the image color.

48MP image and 12MP image: 48MP mode should be skipped

By default, Oppo F11 Pro takes pictures at 12MP resolution. You can optionally shoot at 48MP resolution in the shooting application's settings. However, 48MP mode will not support HDR, 2X digital zoom, "enchanting color" mode and AI function to automatically identify shooting scenes.

In most cases, the quality difference between the 12MP and 48MP images is not clear, including the level of detail and shooting speed. When zoomed in, 48MP images are not much more detailed than 12MP images, the only clearest point is that the sharpening algorithm on this image is applied more strongly so the image looks more solid and the image size is larger. On average, each 48MP image has a capacity of about 11MB, about 3.5 times the size of the image taken at the default 12MP resolution. So, in taking photos daily, you probably don't need to take 48MP photos for heavy camera support and data loss when sharing online.

The picture is bright and bright

In favorable lighting conditions, the Oppo F11 Pro's main camera gives the photo a flattering look. The image has a wide range of light, reasonable brightness, a warm, slightly balanced balance, good contrast, but the color is slightly blazing. Color saturation is pushed up to make the image look more eye-catching, especially hot colors like red, yellow, orange, green.

Another problem is definition. At first glance, we can see that the image is very sharp and highly detailed, but when you look more closely at the details, you can see that Oppo has used the sharpening and floating algorithm a little too much. The image was thorny, the details were harsh and less natural.

Photo is different and backlit

Like many other smartphones today, in bright and backlit conditions, F11 Pro has an HDR mode with three options: turn off, turn on or automatically detect by scene. HDR photos have a fast speed almost like normal mode. With bright and inverted scenes, HDR mode greatly improves the brightness range, retains details in both highlights and shadows. However, similar to normal shooting, in some situations the HDR feature produces images with too bright colors, sharp and spicy patterns that make the image unnatural.

Low-light photos, night mode

In low light conditions, the F11 Pro still retains good shooting speed, images are less blurry or shake hands. However, in some cases, the machine has a focus problem. Despite keeping the camera steady and capturing it many times, the F11 Pro still can't produce the right image. The low-light image quality at the same time retains vibrant, detailed, high-definition colors, less noise than when shooting bright enough.

This phone also has a dedicated night mode. This mode uses multiple frames to improve brightness, detail, contrast and color. Depending on the bright environment, photos taken in night mode have different exposure times. With extremely low-light scenes, the camera takes up to 4 seconds of exposure, making the image's brightness distinctly different from the normal mode, details and sharpness are also significantly improved, especially in the areas of difference. shining.

The scene is less lacking, the exposure time is shorter, so the difference between night photo and auto mode is not too much.

Portraits delete fonts

This can be considered as one of the surprising points of Oppo F11 Pro when the machine produces impressive font-removing photos. The background is moderately blurred, natural, not too virtual. Transition between the background and the subject is soft, less erased in the hair, shoulders or hands. Even when shooting in low light conditions, the font removal feature still works well. When capturing fonts, the machine will automatically beautify the skin, making the face bright, smooth skin, pink and white, more flattering, suitable for portraits.

However, the F11 Pro font removal feature cannot customize the level of background blur before or after shooting like Samsung. The effects of the background or bokeh are not yet equipped.

"Color enchanting" mode

The usual picture of the Oppo F11 Pro has been pushed to the eye more than usual. However, this phone is also equipped with the "Dazzle Color" feature by the manufacturer to continue to push the colors significantly, while also improving the bright strip. Therefore, the images are already fresh and vivid, the "enchanting color" mode makes the image become too brilliant. Therefore, this mode is only suitable for scenes that do not have a lot of colors, need to push the color up slightly for lively.

Camera takes self-pity

Oppo has always been strong in selfie cameras and on F11 Pro this continues to be promoted. Reciprocating camera clusters have fast and slow speeds up, quiet operation, do not take much time to wait. However, the indentation mechanism cannot be avoided easily.

Selfie quality is good. If all the beauty modes are turned off, the images will be sharp and highly detailed, fully reproducing the pros and cons on the face with bright, vivid colors. The camera supports HDR when the selfie significantly improves the light band when shooting backlit, selfie backlight.

Even with only a single camera, F11 Pro can still capture selfie to remove fonts. One note is that the font selfie removes only 8MP resolution, not 16MP as a normal photo, so the sharpness and detail are slightly reduced. When removing fonts, the auto-activated beauty effect helps make the face smooth and white and clear. The background is also erased, so it looks "virtual", unnatural and has a lot of hair.

Oppo's F series machines have so far been self-proclaimed "selfie experts" but with the F11 Pro, the company turned to the new direction of "portrait expert". In fact, the machine shows quite impressive when taking portraits to delete fonts, creating photos with a naturally erased background, fewer errors, helping the subject stand out more.

Normal images in bright or low light conditions of the F11 Pro are all fine with high brightness, vibrant colors, clear reproduction of details, less noise. The problem with F11 Pro is that it pushes sharpness, mass and color to a bit too much, making the image look thorny, harsh and less natural. The 48MP large resolution camera is expected to bring a big difference but it has not shown any significant superiority compared to conventional cameras in previous generations.
